Peter Michael comments:

Can you run a 'repair' & 'optimize' on all wp tables via phpmyadmin?

parksey18 comments:

Yep, tried all that.
Also try activating another theme, tried deactivating all plugins.
Looks like a broader problem as the issue in the video is identical.

Peter Michael comments:

Can you actually see the categories in the wp_terms table?

Some people say restarting the MySQL server resolves the problem.


AdamGold answers:

Please check your wp_terms table. Is it empty? Also, check your 'tmp' directory. (delete it if you have it with a lot of content inside).
If nothing works, try to run this query:
UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy,wp_terms SET wp_term_taxonomy.description = WHERE wp_term_taxonomy.term_id = wp_terms.term_id

Since when have you got this problem? Maybe because a plugin you just installed?

I also read that restarting the mysql may work. Here are some useful resources:
